Until last week, we knew our departure was going to be around the first of the year, but were a little unsure as to when EXACTLY it was going to be. Well now we know.
Lord willing, (James 4:15) we will be leaving for Thailand in April!
Steps between Now and Then
We will be buying plane tickets soon (thanks to Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, NC), but need to wait for baby Claire to get her first so we can get her a passport! (We had to sneak her out in her mommy’s belly the first time she left the country.)
- Have a Baby – Less than 4 weeks away
- Get her set up with a passport
- Buy plane tickets
- Raise the rest of our support
- Have a Setup Fund
- Ship some stuff over
Why wait until April?
Currently, we are at 72% of our support needed after 18 months of deputation and at our departure date we will have been on the road a little over 2 years. It is about a 120,000 mile road to the mission field, if anyone ever asks.
We are extremely blessed to have so many people praying for us as we head out on this last stretch of deputation.
The Lord has given us some pretty exciting dreams to work toward as we have asked Him to use us to see His name lifted up in Thailand and we are more thankful than ever that He has chosen us for His work.
